Jane Fonda VHS press2 by Heidi Kero

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE JANE FONDA AEROBIC VHS? is a strange bird in the Finnish rock scene not only because of it’s long name, but also because the band doesn’t have a guitar player. Instead melodies and distorted sound walls are created by good old Casio and Eco organs. Packed with 60’s girl group/soul melodies, bubble gum punk riffs and pounding drums, which will make your eardrums bleed, this newcomer is truly something to get to know.

 

HYESTJFAVHS? gets it’s influences from a rather wide rangeof genres: all the way from garage rock to doowop, rock’n’roll to 80’s dream pop and 60’s soul and girl groups. Their debut album Teenage Sweetheart was

released on September 11th 2015 by VILD Recordings / Airiston Punklevyt.

 

The band tells that although the albums lyrics may seem a bit grim and disturbing from time to time, the energy and mood of the songs grab you by the wrist and seduces you to turn up the volume, let it loose and jump around to

the tunes, singing along like you did as a kid.

 

Teenage Sweetheart was recorded at an old accordion factory, which serves as their rehearsal space in a small southwestern city Kouvola and was mixed by Santtu Vainio (French Films).
